Septembre Musical 2021
The Septembre Musical 2021 will shine a light on Swiss musicianship.
In these strange times, we felt that now more than ever it was necessary to showcase the richness and diversity of our country’s cultural heritage. Our festival dedicated to Switzerland and every one of its citizens will be celebrated in the strictest compliance with the health measures in force at the end of September. The ticket office will open with room capacity reduced by half. Furthermore, if the festival has to be postponed/cancelled, your tickets will be refunded in full. So don’t delay, it’s time to make your choice!
The Septembre Musical Montreux-Vevey festival is the oldest classical music festival in Switzerland, just behind the one in Lucerne.
The Auditorium Stravinski, the prestigious 1,800-seat concert hall, was designed and created especially for the Septembre Musical festival in the 1990s. Igor Stravinsky, who gave his name to the hall, conducted a programme entirely devoted to his own works in 1956 in Montreux as part of the Septembre Musical festival.
With the arrival of a new director, Mischa Damev, at the head of the festival in 2019, a new era is dawning. Under his leadership, each year the festival puts a country in the spotlight. The culture of this country is celebrated in many forms: its classical music of course with the best musicians, orchestras, composers or soloists from the host country of honour. But also its traditional music, cuisine and visual arts. The festival will be offering its audiences new experiences from 2019 onwards.
The first window opened by Mischa Damev offered a breathtaking view of Russia, the second of Austria.
Under the aegis of culture, Mischa Damev wants to turn the Septembre Musical 2021 into a place of encounter and exchange between peoples on a global scale.
